Womenfest Key West 2009 now through Sunday

From Pandora Events:


Whether you’re looking for a tropical island for a romantic get-away, or hoping to make new friends in a throbbing nightclub scene jammed with sexy women dancing the night away, or seeking an opportunity to snorkel a living reef, parasail, or watch the dolphins at sunset.  Look no further than Womenfest Key West, the southernmost party for lesbians and their friends. 

Hundred of women gathered last night at the beautiful Gardens Hotel in Key West for the Opening party, and hundreds will arrive daily building to the wild weekend parties that Womenfest Key West is known for!

The stars literally came out for Womenfest this year, with Top Gun actress Kelly McGillis being honored at the annual Womenfest Luncheon for her contributions to the arts, the LGBT community, and Key West.  Sharon Gless, of Burn Notice and Cagney & Lacey fame, joins the VIPs of her new movie, Hannah Free, in a post-film Q&A after the Florida premiere of the film, featured at this year’s Women(Film)Fest. 

Headlining Womenfest 2009 is one of the fastest rising stars on the comedy circuit today, Dana Goldberg.  Whether performing for Olivia or in a mainstream club, Goldberg is a tough act to follow! In fact, Curve Magazine recently ranked her as one of the Top Five Funniest Women in the United States, alongside Ellen DeGeneres, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Bridget McManus, and Kate Clinton.  Tickets are already on sale at www.womenfest.com.  

Keeping the nightlife sizzling is DJ Pride, a hot young DJ who has established herself as a Headliner not only in South Florida but on the national circuit. Also performing throughout Womenfest is Jennifer Corday, an award-winning original artist who was named one of "L.A.'s Hottest 100 Artists" by Music Connection Magazine, and Sister Funk returns for yet another rocking year of Womenfest.

Of course, no Womenfest would be complete without hitting the water!  Many mainstream water excursions are unfurling the rainbow flag and offering women-only sails, snorkeling adventures, and other water adventures.  While women-only clothing optional pool parties at several Key West resorts promise a different kind of fun.

Make your travel plans!  Womenfest Key West 2009 runs now thru Sept 13.  Most events are All Welcome.  All events are uniquely Key West.

Check out details about WF events, tickets for the comedy show, information on hotels and travel discounts, all of which can be found at www.womenfest.com.

Kelly McGillis is such an inspiration to me. She was the one who gave the courage to leave my husband two years ago. I hope I'll be able to get cheap enough tickets through Last Minute Travel so I can afford to come to Womenfest 2009!
